*** 1st Call for Papers for the
*** ESWC-2006 Workshop on
***
***   Semantic Network Analysis
***
*** Date of workshop: 12 June 2006

During the past years a shift in the fundamental understanding of the
aims of Computer Science, especially in AI, could be observed. While
early research in AI aimed at replacing the human being with better
tools, the prevalent current vision is nowadays to support him in his
tasks. This shows up in the rise of research areas like communities of
practice, knowledge management, web communities, and peer to peer. In
particular the notion of collaborative work - and thus the need of its
systematic analysis - becomes more and more important.

On the other hand, techniques for analysing such structures have a
long tradition within sociology. While in the beginning, researchers
in that area had to spent huge efforts in collecting data, they
nowadays harvest the data free from the WWW. Popular examples are
citation and co-author graphs, friend of a friend etc.

A new kind of user-centered applications such as blogs, folksonomies,
and wikis, now known as "Web 2.0", consist of large networks of
individual contributions, providing a testbed for Social Network
Analysis (SNA) techniques at the intersection of the semantic web and
SNA areas.

The semantic web provides an additional aspect to SNA on the Web as it
distinguishes between different kinds of relations, allowing for more
complex analysis schemes.

Our aim is to bring together the semantic web community, the SNA
community, and the Web 2.0 community, in order to increase
collaboration and exchange of experiences. We expect especially that
the semantic web community can largely benefit from the long tradition
present in SNA, and to uncover new possibilities and test beds for
semantic technology within the Web 2.0 community.

Besides analysing social networks and cooperative structures within
the (semantic) web, our second aim is to exploit the results for
supporting and improving communities in their interaction. An
important research topic is thus how to include network analysis tools
in working environments such as knowledge management systems, peer to
peer systems or knowledge portals.


Potential Audience
==================

The workshop aims at any researchers working on social communities on
the web. It focuses especially on approaches to social network
analysis that are related to the semantic web. The participants are
expected to be primarily computer scientists, although submissions
from sociology and Web 2.0 community application developers are also
welcome. The primary goal of the workshop is to establish and enhance
communication between these communities.

The workshop follows the successful first SNA workshop held at ISWC
2005, and continues a series of workshops on Semantic Web Mining which
have been held at ECML/PKDD data mining conferences in 2000-2003 and
on Ontologies in P2P communities at ESWC 2005.

We will publicise the workshop via several active and relevant mailing
lists will invite the contributors and attendees of the first SNA
workshop, and to the Semantic Web Mining workshops organised at the
ECML/PKDD conference series.


Submissions
===========

Submissions are invited on work relating the Semantic Web with Social
Network Analysis. Both theoretical as well as applciation papers are
welcome. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the
following:

   * Social Network Analysis of the Semantic Web
   * Network Analysis Methods
   * Analysis of Large Online Communities (Wikipedia, DMOZ, EBay, ...)
   * Semantic Web Communities
   * Web Communities of Practice
   * Online Harvesting of Semantic Network Information
   * Network Analysis for Building the Semantic Web
   * Emergent Semantics in Communities
   * Change Detection
   * Self-organization and Management of Semantic Networks
   * Trust Issues in Semantic Networks
   * Semantic Network Metadata
   * Folksonomies
   * Communities in P2P systems
   * Online Social Networking (FOAF, Orkut, ...)
   * Applications of Online Semantic Networks
   * Knowledge Management with Semantic Networks

We invite papers that report on completed or current work related to the
topic of this workshop. Submissions are to be emailed in Postscript or
Adobe PDF format to Bettina Hoser ([log in to unmask] ), no
later than March 6, 2006. Papers should be formatted according to the
official formatting guidelines of the ESWC'06 main conference (LNCS). Page
limit is set to a maximum of 6 for short papers, and 14 for full papers.
